I hope you have had an amazing week so far 😊 Here are my highlights from The Eternal City:
Autumn is Coming
Although we’ve consistently been in the high 20’s and even 30’s this week 😛 the leaves are starting to change and I can’t help but to fall in love with Roma all over again! 🍂
Leftover Pasta in Campo
Monday afternoon after class I decided to enjoy pranzo (🇮🇹: lunch) in Campo de’ Fiori for a nice change. This piazza is always bustling and full of life. I plan to make more of an effort to enjoy my lunches outdoors – even if it means my pasta is cold 😉 it’s totally worth it 👌🏽
Canadians of ROME!
On Tuesday night I attended the first event of the season for the Canadian Club of Rome 🇨🇦 We enjoyed a lovely Aperitivo on the rooftop of Palazzo Montemartini. The sun set so beautifully and I was in attendance with two of my favourite people: Anastasiya & Elyssa! 👯♀️ I am so excited to have joined the club for the year, it’s going to be a great one. Eh!? 😛
Nights out in September
This week NSP & DNG have been in town! We’ve had some amazing, inspiring conversations, however whenever that happens we always forget to take a selfie 😛 So this beautiful shot will have to do to represent a wonderful evening of deep conversations and big ideas 🙌🏽 To the #GrandeFuturo ✨
I’ll be Speaking in Rome Next Week!
For those of you who follow along from The Eternal City I will be speaking at The Yellow Hostel on Wednesday, September 19th at 18:00 😊 I am looking forward to meeting some of you and inspiring you along your journeys. Hope to see you there ❤️ Sign up for the event here!
Happy Fri-yay! 🤩 This week’s Five Things Friday covers my trip to Porto 🇵🇹 and back to Roma! 🇮🇹 Here are the highlights:
The Beach in Portugal
Even though the overall weather was cooler in Portugal (15-20 degrees) we had a beautiful couple of days at the beach. I love the sea so much 😊 We spent the days listening to good music, talking about life, playing on SUP boards, swimming and jumping in the waves. It was sunny, I was surrounded by some of the best people in my life and truly, there was nowhere I would have rather been ☀️🇵🇹
We met on YouTube
I met these beautiful souls on YouTube! 💕 Photographed is Cheryl from NonStopParis and Kia from Kia Charlotta (they’re kind of big deals). I still remember talking to these girls via YouTube comments when I was back in Toronto. Who would have ever thought we would become the greatest of friends? Thank you for brightening my life ladies 💛 I am so grateful.
La Grande Bellezza
You’re getting a lot of selfies from me this week! I suppose that is because we are all smiles in summertime 😊☀️ This is my best friend Aaron who is visiting from Canada! On Wednesday evening we went for aperitivo at La Grande Bellezza at Piazza Navona. This rooftop is stunning and grants you an amazing 360 view of Rome (you can find it in my Instagram highlights). We each tried a fun cocktail 🍹 and had great conversation with the couple who sat beside us. You never know who you’re going to meet 😊 thank you for inspiring me!
Pinch me! Pincio!
Can you spot San Pietro? Yesterday evening I went for a run up at Pincio in Villa Borghese. If you have never been you must put this on your list for your next trip to Roma! Pincio grants you a sweeping view over Rome and watching the sunset here will make you fall all the more in love with the eternal city. 💫
Anastasiya and I have been planning to go to Ciampini on a Thursday for MONTHS! Something has always come up wether it was work or weather, but finally we got a golden hour at our favourite place! 💫 It was a grande evening of manifestation and law of attraction talks. It’s never a dull moment with my sister. 💃🏼💃🏼
PS: if you didn’t know last week I mentioned I launched a fundraising campaign to support BILLION BABY TURTLES. There is merchandise available in the form of shirts and totes and if merch isn’t your thing there is a GoFundMe page 🤗 $1 can save up to 5 hatchlings!🐢 Get involved!
